Awesome.
 
Alone, Preikestolen, Norway by Europe Trotter
Preikestolen (The Pulpit-Rock) the most famous tourist attraction in Ryfylke, towers an impressive 604 metres over the Lysefjord. This flat mountain plateau, approximately 600 square metres was most likely formed with the melting frost 10,000 years ago.The Pulpit Rock plateau seems to have been cut out with a knife. The right angled system of faults is very visible when viewed from above. One can imagine that enormous blocks on either side of the Pulpit Rock have plummeted into the Lysefjord. Along the whole fjord can be found so-called pressure-release faults, a particulary good example being the crack in the Pulpit Rock. When the Lysefjord glacier melted some 10.000 years ago, the pressure of the ice was removed and the rock.bed cracked. You can easily imagine what will happen when the cracks get deep enough.It is a great experience to be at the top of the plateau.

Very well rendered Saitejas. I like Christmas carols and this one is my favourite.

wonderful pics, Shankar. As I mentioned to you sometime back. I think you can hold a slide show at a venue like Wadia Inst.

A Red Spotted Purple Butterfly or Limenitis arthemis on our sedum blooms. (Photographed 09/07/15)
This is the ventral view (underside) of this butterfly and in a few days I will share the dorsal view (upperside) which is just as beautiful. I'm glad that our garden flowers are getting a lot visits from this species this year. Have a great weekend everyone!

Well put. Logic is used to test ones assumptions/experienes into meaningful understanding. Logic is a mental tool to make sure one gets closer to reality. Reaching understanding is the key.

We travelled between 3rd Nov to 5th Nov 2014 to Bhadra wildlife sanctuary - Mutthodi range and Mullyanagiri, the highest peak in Karnataka. As the forest is in the midst of a very heavy rainfall area, the jungle is dense. Therefore sighting of birds and mammals is very difficult. Four of us, Subbu, Vasanth, Prashanth and I  travelled in XUV 500.
